  No, it violates the constraint "Element Declarations Consistent"
<http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#cos-element-consistent>.  You cannot
have two sibling elements with the same name but different types.  Your
example could have been more simply the following:

       <xsd:element name="e1" type="xsd:string"/>
       <xsd:element name="e1" type="xsd:integer"/>
